Did Lisa Marie Presley say 'So Long' to Scientology - 'Heartfelt people with no heart'

lisa-marie-presley-getty.jpg Lisa Marie Presley, the daughter of rock 'n roll legend Elvis Presley, recently released her third studio album, titled "Storm & Grace," on May 15. The fifth track on the dark, emotional album is titled "So Long" and there are rumors floating around that it's her break-up song with the Church of Scientology.

The Village Voice spoke with Jefferson Hawkins, who was once a marketing guru for Scientology, but left the church in 2005. He tells the newspaper:

I think it expresses how a lot of people feel when they leave Scientology -- they have realized that it is a corrupt church, and is trying to control its members, micromanage their lives. They realize that it is a church without a soul. That is, it tries to present itself as a religion but has no compassion or tolerance or real care for people -- it's just all about money and control. I like the lyric "heartfelt people with no heart." Scientologists are so seemingly sincere and earnest, but the bottom line is they just don't care about their members or anyone else. They have no heart. It's an empty shell, and I think more and more members are coming to that same conclusion.

Here are Presley's lyrics and the song is below - what do you think Pop2it readers?

    This here is a city without lights
    Those are all the people without eyes
    Churches, they don't have a soul
    Soup for sale without a bowl
    Religion so corrupt and running lives
    Farewell, fair weathered friends
    I can't say I'll miss you in the end

    Chorus:
    So long, seems that I was so wrong
    Seems I wasn't that strong
    Dead wrong, and now I'm long gone
    Wrong side, I've been sleeping on the wrong side
    Stains all over my soul I can't hide
    Nothing's more clear than goodbye

    These roads they don't lead to anything
    These people they talk, they say nothing
    Actors who don't have a part
    Heartfelt people with no heart
    I'll find a new crowd
    Make a new start
    Farewell, fair weathered friends
    I can't say I'll miss you in the end

    (Chorus)

    So long, farewell, auf wiedersehen, say nothing at all if you've nothing nice to say
